Sharks are being overfished globally, but local efforts collecting data and protecting areas from fishing are one solution to saving sharks and were they live. Donations go to identifying and tracking reef sharks in and around marine protected areas and providing data to increase permanent protection. With our local partners in SE Asia, Hawaii and Central America, we are protecting important marine habitat and generating policy to stop the shark fin trade and fishing sharks in the Coral Triangle.
